that Ricky Gervais will appear as himself in GTA IV within Liberty City’s comedy club, unveiling new material created especially for Rockstar’s much hyped gangster title.
Speaking to free London magazine Shortlist, he said: It’s a first – which always interests me. It was shot in New York, my favourite place in the world, and I got to wear a tight lycra suit as part of the digital process. No, hold on, that wasn’t so good.”
"Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It’s seriously a big deal, though. Games have outsold Hollywood for the past few years so it’s nice to be a small part of that."
He also hinted that he appears elsewhere in the game – but Gervais fans will have to wait until the title is released on Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 29th to track him down.
